My System32 folder systematically opens when logging on to Windows XP. I understand, from article 170086 from the Microsoft knowledge base, that it has to do with the a string value in two Registry keys. I looked into it, and just cannot detect where the mistake is. May I give you, hereunder, the two keys, in Notepad ? They are not too long :

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"SB Audigy 2 Startup Menu"=" /L:ENG"
"Copernic Desktop Search"="\"C:\\Program Files\\Copernic Desktop Search\\CopernicDesktopSearch.exe\" /tray"
"Weather Pulse"="C:\\Program Files\\Weather Pulse\\weatherpulse.exe"
"ctfmon.exe"="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\ctfmon.exe"

and the second one :

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"NvCplDaemon"="RUNDLL32.EXE C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\NvCpl.dll,NvStartup"
"SunJavaUpdateSched"="C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jre1.5.0_02\\bin\\jusched.exe"
"CTSysVol"="C:\\Program Files\\Creative\\SBAudigy2\\Surround Mixer\\CTSysVol.exe"
"CTDVDDet"="C:\\Program Files\\Creative\\SBAudigy2\\DVDAudio\\CTDVDDet.EXE"
"CTHelper"="CTHELPER.EXE"
"AsioReg"="REGSVR32.EXE /S CTASIO.DLL"
"UpdReg"="C:\\WINDOWS\\UpdReg.EXE"
"UpdateManager"="\"C:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\Sonic\\Update Manager\\sgtray.exe\" /r"
"dla"="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\dla\\tfswctrl.exe"
"VSOCheckTask"="\"C:\\PROGRA~1\\McAfee.com\\VSO\\mcmnhdlr.exe\" /checktask"
"VirusScan Online"="C:\\Program Files\\McAfee.com\\VSO\\mcvsshld.exe"
"MCAgentExe"="c:\\PROGRA~1\\mcafee.com\\agent\\mcagent.exe"
"MCUpdateExe"="C:\\PROGRA~1\\mcafee.com\\agent\\mcupdate.exe"
"HyperappelPL2003"="C:\\Program Files\\Larousse\\Petit Larousse 2003\\bin\\HiPL2002popup.exe"
"WD Button Manager"="WDBtnMgr.exe"
"SetIcon"="\\Program Files\\WDC\\SetIcon.exe"
"Adobe Version Cue CS2"="\"C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Adobe Version Cue CS2\\ControlPanel\\VersionCueCS2Tray.exe\""
"QuickTime Task"="\"C:\\Program Files\\QuickTime\\qttask.exe\" -atboottime"
"iTunesHelper"="\"C:\\Program Files\\iTunes\\iTunesHelper.exe\""
"OASClnt"="C:\\Program Files\\McAfee.com\\VSO\\oasclnt.exe"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\OptionalComponents]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\OptionalComponents\IMAIL]
"Installed"="1"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\OptionalComponents\MAPI]
"Installed"="1"
"NoChange"="1"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\OptionalComponents\MSFS]
"Installed"="1"

Could you tell me where the mistake is hidden ? I cannot see any " missing. But I suspect a comma, and a few blanks?

In anticipation, many thanks for your help,

Best regards

Click start, run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD and get a blue bar, when the bar goes, reboot.

Entry from ur Run section:

SB Audigy 2 Startup Menu =" /L:ENG"


Removing the starting space charcater in the value will solve the problem.
i.e. the value should be "/L:ENG" (no space at starting, compared to current value)
